Need your help. My bride and I are finally to the point we can go camping again which has been a passion of ours. I currently have the Jeep in my sig that I've had for three years and purchased it for a certain personal reason, not because I needed it. I still enjoy the Jeep and it's fun to drive but I'm thinking of getting a truck with a tow package that will help in hauling the camper/trailer we will be buying in the near future. Sans the Jeep in my sig, we usually keep vehicles for 12 to 15 years, assuming there's nothing wrong with them. My question: Does anyone have input on the Ford F150 with the 5.0L V-8. Is it a reliable engine? Any major problems with it, i.e. recalls, poor engine design, etc... or just bad personal experience? I'm looking at a new 2013 that's still available at a local dealership exactly like I would design one, especially the tow package. Hoping that if I decide to change vehicles, they'd be motivated to move this truck at a good price. Lastly, has anyone bought a new, one year old vehicle from a dealership (brand new, just a year older than current year)? Any opinions on what to expect from a price stand point off of the original sticker? Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
